Occupation forces suppressed the weekly protest in Nabi Saleh village, which came under the title of âLoyalty for Our Prisonersâ in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners strike currently being held in occupation prisons. Many of these prisoners were incarcerated arbitrarily for their political actions against the occupation.
Protesters were shot by metal bullets covered with rubber, which injured 4 protesters. They were also shot by tear gas canisters, causing dozens of suffocation cases among the protesters.
The occupation forces shot tear gas bombs and rubber bullets towards houses in the village and announced that Nabi Saleh and surrounding villages are now closed military areas. This closing will prevent outsiders such as Palestinians, international activists, journalists, and medical staff from reaching Nabi Saleh’s weekly protest.
